I would do whatever it takes to start pumping money into our education system. I would push for reforms to school curriculum that would start teaching children fiscal responsibility, how to have a positive attitude and how to treat one another at a very early age.
It seems to me this mess we're in now has been building for a long time. I don't see any quick-fix ways to get out of it. The sooner we start investing in tomorrow, the sooner we get out of this mess. At some point, a certain generation is going to have to make some sacrifices in order to protect the freedoms of the next generation.
